    About this book. Introduction to Population Ecology, 2nd Edition is a comprehensive textbook covering all aspects of population uses a wide variety of field and laboratory examples, botanical to zoological, from the tropics to the tundra, to illustrate the fundamental laws of population Range: £ - £   I've used several and they're frankly all about the same at the level. An introductory biology textbook is also sufficient for 80% of introductory genetics. My recommendation for a general Biology text is Campbell et al., which is a superb.

    This book is an introduction to mathematical biology for students with no experience in biology, but who have some mathematical background. The work is focused on population dynamics and ecology, following a tradition that goes back to Lotka and Volterra, and includes a part devoted to the spread of infectious diseases, a field where mathematical modeling is extremely popular. Introduction to Population Ecology is an accessible and up-to-date textbook covering all aspects of population ecology. Discusses field and laboratory data to illustrate the fundamental laws of population ecology. Provides an overview of how population theory has developed/5.

    Introduction to Population Demographics. introduced the life table to biology when he applied it to laboratory studies of the fruit fly, A history of introduction and the current state of.   Age-Sex Structure. The age-sex structure of a population is a frequently measured population parameter. It refers to the number of individuals of each sex and age group in the population. The age-sex structure of a population is often represented by a special type of bar graph called a population pyramid. You can see two examples of population pyramids in the following .

Population growth is one of the major concerns of the present world as the human population is not a static factor. Rather, it is growing at a very alarming rate. In spite of the increasing world population, the resources of the earth remain constant.

Thus, the ability to maintain sustainable development is becoming a major challenge to mankind. Introduction to Population Biology provides a quantitative and Darwinian perspective of population processes. Packed full of worked examples, step-by-step simulations and problem sets, this book will allow the student to gain a good grasp of the fundamentals of this important area.

This completely revised, fourth edition of Introduction to Plant Population Biology continues the approach taken by its highly successful predecessors. Ecological and genetic principles are introduced and theory is made accessible by clear, accurate exposition with plentiful examples/5(5). The book emphasizes the particular characteristics of plants that affect their population biology, and evolutionary questions that are particularly relevant for plants.

Wherever appropriate, it is shown how ecology and genetics interact, presenting a rounded picture of the population biology of plants.

Finally, population biological aspects, such as behavioral ecology, habitat preferences, population genetics, and population dynamics, are introduced. Introduction The following introduction summarizes the key aspects of the natural history of the genus by: Jonathan Silvertown is the author of Introduction to Plant Population Biology, 4th Edition, published by Wiley.

Deborah Charlesworth FRS FRSE is a British evolutionary biologist. Charlesworth received a PhD in genetics from Cambridge University inand did postdoctoral work at Cambridge, the University of Chicago, and Liverpool : $. Biology. Biology is the science of living beings.

The term Biology comes from two Greek words (bios means life and logos means knowledge). Aristotle is regarded as the father of Biology.

We find two types of life in nature. One is plant while the other is animal.
